After much deliberation, I’ve decided to start writing more short posts on this blog. By short I mean, several hundred words as opposed to my usual 1000-plus-word ones.
The reason for this is twofold:
- to make it easier for me to write more often, since I don’t always have time and energy for those huge pieces, and
- to allow me to comment on things that I just don’t have enough Thoughts to write a thousand words on.
I will label all of the short-ish posts with an [In Brief] tag in the post title, so that if you’re really only here for the novella posts, you can just avoid them.
That said, I think you’ll like them! 🙂
Great idea! I find I tend to have the same problem; I post only when I have lots of time and lots of things to say about a certain topic, which usually means that I don’t post often at all. With brevity comes regularity though, so I think I’ll go down that path too.
Yup, exactly. I feel like now that I’ve set my blogging style as one of long-form analysis, I have to distinguish these short posts (which are totally normal for most blogs) from the long ones somehow…
